Thinking of lanterns ...

The long, grey winter has turned my thoughts to lighter things - lanterns in particular!!

I just love candles & lanterns in the house & garden to provide that soft lighting which is so relaxing.

We have crooks all over the garden for our array of lanters & they just light up the borders & summerhouse & make the garden look inviting.

My favourite house ones are a pair of vintage brass lanterns that I found on the Bridport market and a stunning brass wall lantern with an eagle on the top that I found in the Hungerford antiques market.

So my thoughts are turning to garden lighting & lanterns - what are your preferences?

Look in soon again
